Happy Tuesday!

Wow, we have had two days of sunshine in a row!
The Iris are staring to bloom as well as the Painted Daisies and
Dwarf Peonies, 
with the Penstimon and Poppies soon to follow.
The greatest joy is the snakes they are everywhere and this makes me happy!
I realize many of you do not have the affinity I have for these creatures 
I was a tomboy growing up so I'd usually have some creepy crawling critter
in my hand and pockets most of the time. 
I got bit stung sprayed and peed and pooped on 
but I never learned to fear these valuable creatures.
My kids are the same as I and I am most pleased!!!

I have a card to share using a Pixie Dust Studio Image
Pixie Pearl:
(click for sharper image)


She looks how I feel when I am outside taking in all the beauty...
Thanks for stopping, by I am off to see what else is blooming.

Outstanding card, as always! I've missed your blog. Glad I'm back.

I admit. I cringed when I read "snakes". Oh my. Snakes are just not my thing. LOL
